In this book, I have summed up how to put your space in order in a way that will change your life forever.
Have you ever tidied madly, only to find that all too soon your home or workplace is cluttered again?
The moment you first encounter a particular book is the right time to read it.
...we should be choosing what we want to keep, not what we want to get rid of.
...the best way to choose what to keep and what to throw away is to take each item in one’s hand and ask “Does this spark joy?” If it does, keep it. If not, dispose of it.
I recommend that you always think in terms of category, not place.
Getting rid of other people’s things without permission demonstrates a sad lack of common sense.
The urge to point out someone else’s failure to tidy is usually a sign that you are neglecting to take care of your own space.
There’s no need to finish reading books that you only got halfway through. Their purpose was to be read halfway.
My basic principal for organizing papers is to throw them all away.
Store everything similar in the same place or in close proximity. Don’t disperse your storage space.
Shouldn't be combined with
The Life-Changing Manga of Tidying Up: A Magical Story even though the titles are similar (at least in English). The two books were written several years apart and the manga is a fictionalized lesson on the KonMari Method, told through a story that doesn't appear in this book.
